I don't know what brand that is but it sure can take a punch. I counted 16 blows before it gave up its keys. ha

That was horrible. I know it's not a piano but a plastic keyboard, but hey some of us started out on these before we got our pianos. I actually felt sorry for the keyboard.

If the idiot didn't want it why not give it to a kid who'd love to play on it?

I have just checked one other video from that channel... Maybe it was supposed to be funny but the guy must have some serious issues.

I didn't look at the others- the keyboard smashing showed me he is an idiot.


I had two keyboards before I got my piano. One was a mini one with mini keys that had all sorts of sounds on it and programmable beats. Good fun but teeny keys so it was for a child really. I found it in the hallway of the house I was living in and as nobody knew whose it was nor wanted it I took it. Then a friend gave me a bigger 76 keyed one and I played around on that til I got Piano from freecycle. I then gave the 76 keyed keyboard to a friend as he was looking to get one anyway. And the little one I put on freecycle and a child came with her Mum to take it- she was so happy to have it! Smashing up those keyboards never entered my head- it was nice to pass them on.

Yeah, that's how it should be.

I'm still not sure what to make of that guy in the videos, beating up all sorts of stuff, but it makes my head hurt so I might as well stop trying.

Well, Mark, my old Alfred buddy, it took a brain surgeon to build Frankenstein - be careful you don't get sued for malpractice (or attacked by people with torches and pitch forks laugh ).
